Kingston Digital, a leading supplier of solid-state drives, this week introduced the SSDNow E50, the company’s latest enterprise-class solid-state drive (SSD). SSDNow E50 enables performance-focused organizations that do not have heavy endurance needs to obtain the same enterprise-level performance as Kingston’s SSDNow E100 but at a more cost-effective price point.

 

SSDNow E50 features advanced data integrity protection via DuraWrite technology that extends the life of the SSD by effectively and efficiently reducing the number of Flash writes via an intelligent compression engine without sacrificing data integrity. RAISE reduces the number of uncorrectable errors in the drive, over and above standard error code correction. SSDNow E50 surpasses competitive market offerings with its robust intelligent power failure protection to prevent data loss in the event of a power outage or interruption.

SSDNow E50 allows companies to take advantage of enterprise-level SSD performance for tasks such as data caching, frequently accessed data within applications, online transactional processing and virtualization performance. SSDNow E50 helps alleviate I/O latencies and server bottlenecks by providing greater IOPS and higher bandwidth.

“We found that there was a demand within our customer base and partner community for an SSD that offers enterprise-strength reliability and superior features but with lower endurance capabilities and associated costs. Based on this feedback, we developed SSDNow E50 and are pleased to further expand Kingston’s SSD family to support the evolving needs of our customers and partners,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager at Kingston.
